Pics from the Backyard

Oregano on its 2nd sprouting... the first batch was already cut, dried, and jarred. Egyptian onions, bulb fennel, and parsley.
Black Beans (the dark row next to the fence), tiger eye beans, and cannelli beans.

Sugar peas!

Red Beets and carrots.

3 month old strawberries looking mighty strong.
Onions circling peppers. this is the center of the rose garden which used to be planted in annuals -- usually begonias or marigolds. This year, its all edibles.

Broccoli just about to overwhelm us -- we have 40 plants that will be ready to pick all at the same time!

My broccoli is seriously taking over my garden. I'm a little overwhelmed by it. I don't know why I thought that they wouldn't get so big. I ended up snapping off a leaf on a few plants because they were completely shading pepper and cucumber plants. I hope that doesn't hurt the plant.

Everything looks beautiful, especially the broccoli!

Kera - no, it won't hurt the broccoli to de-leaf it a bit.
